Today on Radio Riel we present a collection of music from the Victorian and Edwardian eras – “Vicwardiana”.

In fact the programme runs from around the mid-19th Century to around the end of the First World War.

The show covers a wide range of musical styles and genres, from music-hall songs to parlour ballads, from classical pieces to waltzes and dance-hall music, and music from mechanical instruments of the period (plus some rather more recent, but you’ll have to spot them). Recordings are a mixture of modern and vintage.


Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with our friends at the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the programme in-world now at http://main.radioriel.org, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so. Listeners in the United States are encouraged to tune in using this link: http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
